EMDR therapy addresses what happens after the critical incident has passed (physical or sexual abuse, accident or invasive procedure, sudden loss). When the shock of the incident is gone, you may be haunted with a flood of memories and emotions.
There may be images in your mind or a nauseous reaction in your stomach that doesn’t go away. The memory may intrude on your sleep at night, or your focus throughout the day.
Common symptoms of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) are sudden crying spells, flashes of memory, feeling jumpy or panicky at sudden or loud noises, and loss of interest or avoidance of previously enjoyed activities. EMDR therapy offers a specific kind of support for post traumatic stress symptoms that can bring immediate and lasting relief.
EMDR therapy is a mind-body approach that processes traumatic memory such as assault, abuse, or sudden loss, so that you can truly move on and enjoy life again.
